We may be in the thick of winter, but many stars are sporting one of our favorite summer hairdos: beachy waves.

Jessica Biel kept it casual at "The Truth About Emanuel" Los Angeles premiere with her ombré hair in tousled waves, and Gabrielle Union went glamorous with voluminous waves cascading down her back. Meanwhile, Reese Witherspoon gave her new bob haircut a twist with loose and layered waves.

Check out these beachy hairstyles (and more head-turning looks) and tell us what you think.

BEST: Jessica Biel

Could Mrs. Timberlake look any cooler? The actress' beachy hair, matte face makeup, subtle glitter eyeshadow and pink lipstick add a feminine flair to her leather jacket.

BEST: Gabrielle Union

The "Being Mary Jane" star is positively glowing with her clean skin, curled lashes, glossy lips and big, beachy hair. It's simple yet sophisticated, and you can easily recreate this hair and makeup at home.

BEST: Reese Witherspoon

We love the blonde beauty's shorter hair even more with her spin on winter beachy waves. Her bronze eye makeup and coral orange lipstick add warmth to her milky complexion.

BEST: Blake Lively

Blake Lively's honey-blonde locks are absolutely stunning styled into these lush, deep waves. The gold highlighter placed at the inner corners of her eyes is a beauty trick to make eyes of any color pop. And her bordeaux wine lip color completes the old Hollywood-inspired look.

BEST: Demi Lovato

Wow! We haven't seen makeup this immaculate in a mighty long time. But Lovato's flawless foundation, frosty pink blush and lipstick do well to balance out her blue-streaked updo.

WORST: Christina Applegate

The "Anchorman 2" actress missed the mark with this red carpet beauty look. Applegate's updo hairstyle seems unintentionally messy, that winged-out liner draws attention to her crow's feet and the pale pink lip color blends in with the rest of her nude ensemble.

WORST: Megan Good

The shape of Good's eyebrows may be on the thinner side, but it is flawless. However, the ghostly grey shadow she used to fill in those brows clashes with her caramel complexion.

WORST: Evangeline Lilly

The pompadour hairstyle is a classic 'do that not many people can pull off today, and we think it doesn't work particularly well here for Lilly. The shimmering eye makeup and lip gloss are also unflattering.

WORST: Halley Feiffer

When wearing bright pink lipstick AND blush, women with fair skin tones like Feiffer's run the risk of appearing red in the face. Less cheek color would have easily turned this look around.

WORST: Edie Campbell

Why is it that in 2013 celebrities are still mimicking "Black Swan" eye makeup? We find it really hard to take Campbell seriously. At least her pixie looks great...
